actually i never touch the susp. its at the same hight, it tq's a lot tho with the sway bar unhooked but it nice on the rocks...for like driving around and screwin around with the water and in the sand it needed the sway bar...but was a good time...i also found out that the springs are too soft to go out and do hit any big bumbs

you need to figure out your rear suspension. it shouldnt lift the front tire so easily

Good video but you need to do something with the suspension. I cant believe how bad the front end lifts from torque and climbs. You need to put on a rear antirock to help some of that. Lowering in down a little wouldn't hurt either. Nice looking jeep though.

Where was that big water hole at? The only one I remember of that size was in the quary and was off-limits. But it's been a couple years since I've been there.

a sway bar would help some of the torque lift and climb lift. It would help transfer the weight instead of letting it flop all to one corner. Get out the saw and start cutting so you can lower it now before you roll and wreck it. you obviously are wanting to wheel hard stuff Do a search for akozman and check out how low his rig is. this should give you some ideas. He is even running all coil spring. no coilovers

You can take a DD out there. I've lead stone stock YJs at The Badlands without problems.
